In a battle of NFC West teams, the Seattle Seahawks will play at the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. This is part of the Week 14 schedule in the National Football League. The Seattle Seahawks come into the game tied with Los Angeles for second in the NFC West. The Rams own the tiebreaker, as they have beat Seattle twice. Currently, the Seahawks are on the outside looking in for a postseason spot. The Seahawks have dropped three straight games, including last Thursday against the Cowboys.
For the San Francisco 49ers, they are red hot right now. After dropping three in a row to fall to 5-3, they took their bye week, and since then have won four straight games. The 49ers are coming off a big time win on the road at Philadelphia last week. San Francisco is tied with the Detroit Lions for the second seed in the NFC, just a game behind the Eagles. The 49ers are looking to beat the Seahawks for the second time this season. San Francisco won on Thanksgiving Day 31-13.
The San Francisco 49ers are big favorites in this game. The 49ers are -10.5 at home over Seattle. The total for this tilt is listed at 46.5 points.
Purdy Good Offense for the 49ers
The San Francisco offense is anchored by former Iowa State w star Brock Purdy. He continues to get the job done, with 3,185 yards passing, 23 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Brandon Aiyuk is his top target, who needs just 63 more yards for 1,000 on the season. Other than that, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey continue to eat as well.
McCaffrey has been tremendous, with 12 touchdowns on the ground, and an additional five via the pass. His 17 touchdowns lead all players in the National Football League. The 49ers have scored 27 points or more in each of their 9 wins. In the three losses, they scored 17 points each game.
The 49ers are heading to Arizona following this game for a date against the Cardinals. The 49ers then take on Baltimore on Christmas Day, before a game at Washington on New Years Eve, and a home game against the Rams on January 7th.
Seattle Struggling in Second Half
Geno Smith was strong in the loss to the Cowboys last week. He connected with D.K. Metcalf for three touchdowns in the game. That combination has hooked up 49 times this season for 812 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Tyler Lockett is next for Seattle. He has 59 receptions and 5 touchdowns, with just over 620 yards. The run game for Seattle is anchored by Kenneth Walker III. The former Michigan State star running back did not play last week, and is questionable for this game.
The Seahawks host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football next week. Then, they have a trip to Tennessee, home game against Pittsburgh, and a trip to Arizona left on their 2023 schedule.
49ers Run Over Seahawks
Pete Carroll and his Seattle Seahawks are in big trouble. They ran into a tough portion of their schedule, and have not been playing great football. They are also a little beat up. All those things considered, and we have not mentioned how well the 49ers are playing.
This has the makeup of a complete blowout. Take the 49ers to win this game by double digits, and multiple touchdowns. The final betting pick for this game on Sunday is the San Francisco 49ers -10.5 over the Seattle Seahawks.
